Traveling With My Planner
Non-planner people don't know the struggle.
More often than not, our planning consists of multiple pens, lots of stickers, more rolls of washi tape than we can count, die cuts, etc. etc. etc. Right? Well, when we travel it's not realistic to bring your entire craft room with you on the plane so we have to dial it back and only bring the essentials. Scary thought. And don't even think about telling me to leave my planner at home. That's not an option.
I'm only bringing what can fit, perfectly contained, in my planner.
So let's get into it.
Right now, I am using the Ebony Classic Croc from Filofax in the personal size. It has a back pocket, zip pouch, pen holder, and a few card slots at the back.
I'm not changing around my inserts too much because I'm happy with what I currently have and I'm okay bringing everything with me. I need my regular weekly and monthly spreads as well as some of my goal and habit trackers that I'll try my best to stay on top of while I'm on vacation. However, one change I have made is I've taken out my Notes section that is typically the last section of my planner and replaced it temporarily with The Travel Planner. This has some incredibly important information about our trip, flights, hotels, things we want to do, outfits I've packed, etc. I'll be referencing these pages religiously throughout the honeymoon.

It was a good time for me to go through my sticker collection anyways. I had lots of sticker sheets that were nearly empty and needed to be purged. And I definitely purged! I'm now only bringing 4 sticker sheets with me: My fav planner spot bow and heart stickers and some decorative dots I got from a cloth and paper sub box a while back. If I feel like I need to decorate more or have a sticker in mind that would work perfectly and I didn't bring with me, I'll leave it blank and come back to it once I return home.
STICKY NOTES/NOTE PADS
I'm only bringing 4 sticky notes and only bringing what will fit in the front zip pouch of my planner. I have a blank marble note pad, a lined note pad, some page flags for temporary planning, and a habit tracker note pad from cloth & paper just in case I feel like tracking while I'm away. The blank notepads will come in handy if I need to write something down, for instance if we need to jot down a phone number or rememebr the name of a restaurant as we pass by.
Believe it or not, this was the hardest part. I ended up being really strict with myself and I'm only bringing my grey mildliner and my go-to Uni-Ball Signo DX 0.38. I thought about bringing at least one Tombow, #942, however it's a lot longer of a pen, and doesn't fit anywhere in my planner so I feel like there's a risk I'd lose it and I'd be heartbroken if I did. Better to just leave it at home.
It's a skinny-mini planner now! Wow. I thought about even transporting all of my inserts into an old planner just so nothing would happen to my croc, but I can't leave this baby at home alone. I'll be extra careful.
Anyways, that's all I'm bringing on my honeymoon.
What do you think? How did I do? Do you travel with your planner?
